According to Austrian designer Robert Stadler, “The idea in question is rooted in my fascination with unidentifiable objects.” Published in conjunction with the exhibition at Galerie Poirel in Nancy, the catalogue follows Stadler’s inquiry into those less common design objects that are multi-layered, camouflaging or concealing their functionality in features that only gradually become apparent, and thereby achieving the status of the “thing”. Besides an interview with Stadler, the book features essays by Emily King, Claire Brunet and Kirsty Bell, along with full-colour plates of the many inscrutable and bizarre objects by a range of international designers that were specially selected for the exhibition.
